COPENHAGEN: Denmark's leftist government on Thursday collapsed when coalition partner the Socialist People's Party quit over the controversial sale of a stake in state-controlled energy group DONG to a U.S. investment bank.

"We have followed this DONG case to the end," party leader and former Minister for Social Affairs and Integration, Annette Vilhelmsen, said at a press conference, where she announced her resignation from both positions.
